Stories from Taji:  Colonel Richard Vagg, Commander, Task Group Taji 4 in Iraq

With around 300 Australians and 100 New Zealanders based at the Taji Military Complex north of Baghdad, we appreciate their Commander, Colonel Richard Vagg, taking time out from his busy schedule to tell us about the mission, why it’s needed and what our troops are actually doing over there in Iraq.
